THE management of a chicken-processing factory in Thailand has reportedly floated the idea of building a wall between Cambodian and Thai workers after a drunken brawl erupted between the two groups at the premises in July.
The Bangkok Post reported yesterday that executives at the GFPT Nichirei chicken processing factory in Chon Buri province hatched the idea after 700 Cambodian workers rioted on July 10, following a fight.
The violent dust up between small groups of Cambodian and Thai employees led to the arrest of two workers from Thailand, the Bangkok Post reported.
Andy Hall, Foreign Expert at Mahidol University’s Institute of Population and Social Research, called the measure extreme and said both the Cambodian and Thai governments should take measures to address the underlying causes of the fight. The Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs could not be reached yesterday, which was a public holiday.
